    I saw that; was glad to read it. Figuring out how to tell the story thematically while accounting for intercuts between storylines was an interesting challenge in that one.

    Was at Star Wars Reads Day in Sydney and got to read from Edge of the Galaxy. That was fun.

    Are you ready for some grav-ball? Wrote a little something for the official site about my adventures creating a sport for Edge of the Galaxy. Yes, it's a Star Wars sports novel. (Well, I hope it's a lot more than that. But that's the starting point.)

    Thanks for the reminder--Tarkin's been taking up so much oxygen this week I almost forgot EotG was almost out.

    ETA: You had me at "nanny droid with strong opinions".

    Ah yes, haven't had a chance to read Tarkin yet. Excited for it, Sheevity notwithstanding.

    Speaking of which, EotG reveals that Muftak's first name is now Beilert. In fact, Story Group allowed me to rename everyone Beilert. Suck on it, haters.

    Tarkin is the best. The book, not the man. The man kind of sucks. But don't tell Kallus I said that, or you'll just have to write another book detailing my demise at the hands of the ISB.

    Speaking of which though, is your book better read after watching the upcoming episode about the Academy stuff? Or before?


    Missa ab iPhona mea est.

    Before. It's a prequel. Tells you how Zare got to be in the situation where we'll meet him.

    Does it take place before Season 1 in general? Or just directly before that episode?

    I don't know how much ground Season 1 covers, but EotG starts more than a year before when we meet Zare in the show.

    So, are you liking the Sheevity? What's your opinion? ;)

    It's not a great name, though a different spelling might have helped. (Shieve Palpatine, for instance, doesn't immediately make you roll your eyes.) But there are plenty of not-so-great names in Star Wars, and that's even before we got to the Something-tells-me-you're-a-bad-guy naming of the prequels. I mean, the leader of the whole frigging Rebellion got saddled with the name Mon Mothma.

    Now playing: "Sheev's the Mon," where Amanda Bynes as Palpatine attempts to infiltrate the Rebellion by posing as Mothma

    Even Beilert is a better name than Sheev.

    Even Beilert.

    Even Piell is better. Even Piell Palpatine.

    Another book detailing your demise at the hands of the ISB? How many times have they killed you? Why does Jason Fry have to keep writing about it?

    That just shows that all those years as Palpatine's personal bootlicker and stool have paid off since he is always pardoned in the last minute.

    Now I've read it - it's good stuff. Definitely got me eagerly anticipating the TV follow-up.

    I was more thinking that Palptine kept transferring his consciousness to new clone bodies.

    I mean, that is how it worked in SWG, where Jello rose to power.
